as long as he didn't get down to the tank fibers with that channel-lock it should be fine. But if you really want to be on the safe side and don't have even a dive shop or a hydrotester around that can check it out for you the easiest way (like most here have said) is to drill a large hole in it (1/2" is usually big enough for anyone to see)

good luck!
I'm inclined to agree with this. Get it hydro'd, at the most the tech will fail it on visual. If he says its OK, go for gold. Have it hydro'd.

What they said. Get it tested. If you can't get it tested, destroy it and dispose of it. Not worth taking a chance with something that can be replaced much easier than body parts or lives that could be lost if it fails at the wrong time.

from the top picture it looks like the reg is cross threaded or not tighten all the way..

WTF,why would i trade for that?

Ebay, camocow200 (1021) + 100% positive
MCB 275 +

I have a new and old take other then this one. Just wanted someone to say what I was already thinking. The tank is from the states because I got it from another military member out here. He isn't the most paintball savvy person. I also got an 08 ego off of him and he didn't know anything about the diagrams needing to be replacement. So someone changed the reg for him.
